Two months passed so swiftly. Looks like March gonna be a month filled with some events for John and I.
It begins with my mom baptism today - Siew Cheng's open house tomorrow - I will be reporting to work on Mon - the election heat next Sat - Ah Heng son's Wedding on Sun - my 3days Fasting Retreat at Bentong which will clash with Pacestters AGM and F1 - a memorial do for my late sister - Che Che New York boutique opening - and we'll end March with KL Marathon.
Since my mom is getting baptized today, my intention was to dedicate this morning's run to her. As I was getting ready, the skies gates opened up and began to pour! John had already set his mind on cycling no matter what, so he went ahead. So, I decided to run anyway, rain or no rain.
Since baptism is related to dipping oneself into the water, the morning showers added meaning to an otherwise dry run. Well, I hoped the rain will stop soon but it didn't. Ha! as if it was meant for me to get baptized too?! Yup, I could feel the rain pouring into my clothes and sinking deep into my skin. It lasted the entire morning run...heavy drizzle but the feeling was good and refreshing! I completed about 8km.
In the afternoon, I witnessed my mom's baptism. It's amazing to believe that my mom who has been worshipping idols all her life has accepted the Lord Jesus Christ last year. But I always believe that things happened for a reason. It is good to see her happier now and that's what life is all about. To be happy.
I'm not a religious person and sad to say, I do not have a religion. But I do believe that as long as one has faith in something or someone who can give oneself comfort and peace of mind - then, one should believe. Quote Hebrews 11:1 "Now faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen."Hey, I do read the Scriptures sometimes but I also listen to the teachings of Buddha and at ACIM, I learn about love. Only love. As a seeker, I guess I'm still searching...as I search, I'll be able to discover, to learn and to experience.
